You can't back test subscriptions.

You can't back test subscriptions.

@WHRoeder: He is not requesting back-testing a subscription. He stated that he wanted help back-testing the "MACD Sample".

@beyonder: Read through the applications help file: MetaTrader 4 -> Help -> Help Topics (F1) -> Client Terminal -> Auto Trading -> Strategy Tester

>> "test generator unmatched data error"

Means that there are differences between data from different time-frames.

>> whole time is it not downloading tick data the whole time

It won't build a database of tick data. It will only build history data based on bars of different time-frames but only for the charts that are open. So if you want to store long term data, you will have to do one of the following:

  • either have all charts open for every time-frame M1, M5, M15 , M30, H1, H4, D1, WK1, MN1 for a very long time in order to collect the necessary data.
  • alternatively, download the data via the "History Center (F2)"
  • or use 3rd Party tools with external tick data to build true tick data files (FXT) for the strategy tester.
